Unloading terrorist on one island and selling arms to kill them on another island … the free

Yep. But NO free market for the peasants at home…along with no jobs of course and no money to spend anyway. But the government has plenty of time and money for the merchants of death…

Why not? We sell them to Saudi Arabia.

We should rename our country “Stark Enterprises.”

The U.S. had been avoiding major arms sales or even military aid to the Philippines even when Duterte’s opponents were in power. That’s because the goal was to keep the Philippines weak and dependent on the U.S.
